    Default Job offers from Canadian companies

    I got two job offers from Canadian companies. One is in Vancouver and the other in London (in the province Ontario). I have to reject one of these and am having a hard time deciding which to choose. The pay is similar and the companies are equally good. Any experience with these cities and which is better?

    Housing costs in Vancouver are the highest in Canada according to the news. Vancouver is also known for traffic congestion. It has very mild winters and is very close to skiing and a lot of outdoor activity. The west coast is beautiful and is worth exploring. I have no idea about the Ontario side of things. These are a couple of points that may weigh in on your decision.

    Where do you live currently? This may give us a better idea of what may constitute a plus or minus in your case.

    Housing in London would be far cheaper the out west. However i have no doubt the scenery out there is breath taking. If you really like skiing out there's your best bet. With London as long as you don't have to drive Toronto way in the morning. Count your blessings, even going to Hamilton sucks, but God have mercy on your soul if you have to drive into Toronto. Possibly the worst drive ever. I don't know if traffic is comparable out west.

    It's a lot to weigh in on, and seriously not answerable on a shaving forum. I don't know if I'd listen to the guys on here about a serious life choice. Some yes, some no. There are good people here but we really have no clue what's best for you. We don't know you or your situation other then the small details you told us.

    Traffic congestion!!!! The 401 is the busiest highway in North America if Vancouver is congested Ontario must be straight up blocked

    Only joking friend... You know

    Rez, you notice his first post on a shaving forum is about work? Classic.


    O.P. I hope you like wet shaving!! Ask us about that

    So how do you feel about badger vs boar?
    Soap vs cream?
    Straight vs Safety?
    Full hollow vs wedge?
    Round point vs spike?
    Williams vs P160
    Aust vs Dovo?
    Latigo vs bridle?
    Natural vs synthetic?
    Hones vs pastes?
    Beating a point to death vs stopping?

    I do realize the topic of this thread is a little off for a first post on a shaving forum.
    I would like to think that we can do a little better than this for responses.
    I also realize that we are here to help with shaving issues and learning about wet shaving.
    I believe that this is all in good fun, but the OP has not been around long enough to know that.

    Yup, point taken.

    Well I have been to London and I have been to Vancouver. The latter was beautiful, though I did repeatedly hear about how expensive it was to live there so it really is going to depend upon the pay for the particular job offer as to whether or not it is viable considering the higher cost of living. London was also very nice, but since it was in England I don't think that my opinion is of particular relevance.

    Welcome to SRP however you got here!
